If you are in the area and have some time I definitely recommend a visit here. It's small but full of history. We tried the don Pello coffee and it was very good.

In the heart of this central town named CIALES in Puerto Rico, you will find this small and quaint museum, where they actually roast the famed DON PELLO gourmet high grade coffee. There are many variations that you can actually purchase at the place. Since I am indeed a coffee connoisseur (but not an expert), I highly recommend that you... More

Sadly this place didn't meet our expectations. The place needs to be taken care off, there wasn't anyone to show us around, not really a museum. The coffee shop was very small and even though the coffee was good the service was very slow and not very friendly. Sadly not the best experience.

Is a must visit for coffee lovers, the Don Pello coffee is the best I've ever taste. The host Mercedita is very lovely and gave us a lot of information and tips about coffee and its preparation she was very kind with us. Highly recommended place to visit!!!!

While visiting family and relatives in my hometown I was told about the Coffee Museum, so we decide to visit. It is a small place but it has all the history about the agriculture of the coffee of the town of Ciales and what machinery was used to cultivate it, let me tell you I learned a lot. It's owner...

If the owner is your guide, be prepared for a very long monologue about coffee, it's history and it's politics in Puerto Rico. Although very knowledgable, the guide was not in tune with his group as after more than an hour of preaching, most people in the small room (where there were no chairs) had pulled out their cell phones....

Very interesting museum plus awesome coffee!!😊👍☕️🇵🇷 The entrance is free, unless you want a tour guide in which case its $3.00. Nice place to visit if you're in the area.

This was an awesome little place tucked away from the public. Tried to get a tour in English but the owner was out of town. Loved this place and the coffee artifacts there.
